• How to wrap the perfect present for Mothering Sunday

    So, you have found the perfect gift for your Mum for Mothering Sunday, but now you have to wrap it. Here are our expert wrapper’s top tips on how to wrap the perfect present.

    • Before you start, it is important to select the right paper, we would recommend a medium-weight gift wrap, as it is easier to work with than thinner ones, which have a tendency to crumple and tear.
    • Once you have selected your paper make sure you measure it properly, as this will make the wrapping easier and, also, ensures the ends will be neatly folded.
    • Always use sharp scissors to cut the paper, if you don’t you may get torn, jagged edges, instead of nice clean ones.
    • To avoid any unsightly tears or creases make sure you wrap your presents on a hard surface. Don’t be tempted to work on the floor or carpet, as it makes it more difficult to control the paper.
    • One of the trickiest parts of wrapping a present is folding the ends. We would recommend folding the sides first and then folding the top flap and the bottom flap to meet one another in the middle before taping.
    • If you want to be really neat, use double sided tape to keep all traces of tape hidden. However, if you are using a plain wrap you could make a bold statement by using a contrasting colourful tape.
    • Once the gift is wrapped, add bows or ribbon for further decoration and be sure to match or contrast the items you use for maximum impact.
